Corsair 650 watt enough for a single GTX 285?

  1. Hello.

    Just a very simple question. I plan on building a new computer soon. I will be using an EVGA GeForce GTX 285 video card and a Phenom II x4 965BE CPU.

    I was just wondering if a 650watt Corsair power supply would be enough to power that setup without any issues? Incase your wondering. The PSU i have in mind is the Corsair HX650W (Modular) and has a single, 57amp +12v rail.

    So what do you guys think? Enough for this new build?

    Full spec list of the new PC is:

    Motherboard: Asus M4N82 Deluxe
    RAM: Corsair XMS2 Dominator DDR2-1066Mhz 4GB
    Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 285
    CPU: AMD Phenom II x4 965 Black Edition @ 3.4Ghz
    PSU: 650watt Corsair HX650w (Providing that will be fine)
    Hard Drive: Western Digital Black 1TB

    All that will be housed in the lovely Antec Nine Hundred Two case and that CPU will be cooled by a Zalman CNPS9700NT cooler. Fairly nice pc for just over 2000 dollars NZ :)

    You should be just fine, as according to manufacturer that graphic card's requirement is 550W PSU.
